|Since their reformation in
2004, the Bully Wee Band have had no trouble proving that they are still a
force to be reckoned with as one of Britain’s foremost exponents of
acoustic folk/rock music.
Originally formed in the early 70s by brothers Jim and John Yardley, the Bully Wee Band successfully toured Britain, Europe and America through several line-ups until the last one of Ian Cutler, Fergus Feely, Colin Reece and Maartin Allcock finally called it a day in 1983.
20 years later a chance meeting between Messrs Cutler, Feely and Reece resulted in a very spirited jam session at Faversham Folk Club in Kent, and a subsequent decision to put a three piece Bully Wee Band back on the road in January 2004 “if only for the craic”.
So successful was the 2004 tour that Colin, Ian and Fergus decided to repeat the experience the following January, only this time with the addition of Bully Wee founder member Jim Yardley. Thus the current line up of Ian Cutler, Fergus Feely, Colin Reece and Jim Yardley was complete and reunited.
They have toured every January since. Appearing regularly at:

matured over the years.
